Have They Won?

As you may know, I have been spending time at the Huffo Post sharing my Hillybilly thoughts. I am surprised that there are other conservative Christians there too. The majority of folks there are left leaning. What I have also noticed is that there is not much common ground, and just about everybody stands their ground. So I am wondering if the string pullers, who pretty much run Washington, because Lord knows we don’t, have succeeded in driving a permanent wedge between us? With congress’ approval ratings in the single digits, it would seem that us right-wingers, and those lefty-nuts could find something to agree on.

I would say we need to at least agee on civil discourse of the issues that face our nation. I would also suggest we all admit we, as a nation, need to decide if we are going to continue to give the government a larger role in our lives, or, like I hope for, that we start to get them the heck out of it in almost every aspect, except for national defense.

I know we fought a bloody war over this once, I hope it does not happen again.

    Yes it is a permanent wedge. Instead of uniting the nation(now impossible) Nixon’s strategy was to divide the nation and get the 51% part. Well it is a natural and irreversible thing now with the pols fighting over that swing several percent.
